Card & Video / Make Amazing Design Team

Hello everybody! Today I have a card to share. Not so exciting. But also a video. Very exciting! At least for me! And I am sitting on the wrong side of the camera for this one. Richard Garay asked us to do a video when unboxing our Make Amazing Design Team boxes, so I took my courage in both hands and filmed myself looking at all the wonderful goodies for the first time. This video is full of "beautifuls", "perfects", "pretties" and "cutes", but it is not voiced-over and filmed in real-time (I only cut out some lengths or it would have been too boring), I was very nervous and please remember that English is not my mother language. Please be kind :)

Here it is:

You'll find the Celebra'tions Collection here and Fun Stampers Journey products here and the cute FSJ Journey Girl jewelry line here.

Now to the card! I had to start creating immediately, so here comes a first project:

This solid flower from the "My Friend" stamp set is so beautiful. I wanted to create a card with it using fall colors and texture. First, I created a card base from Totally Tangerine cardstock. Then I trimmed a panel of orange patterned paper from the Celebra'tions Prints Paper Pack slightly smaller than the card and adhered it. Now I die-cut a rectangle using the Pierced Rectangles dies from FSJ Butter Cream Cardstock and stamped the flower and the stem (using Totally Tangerine, Odacious Orange, Golden Glow and Luscious Lime ink). I stamped the sentiment using FSJ Hazelnut Blend ink  and applied ink splatters from my FSJ Gold Silk bottle. After it was dried, I adhered the rectangle to the card. Now I tied a bow with the Celebra'tions Linen Thread and adhered it. Then I finished the card off with some Hip Hooray sequins.

I hope you like it! Thank you so much for visiting!

It was very fun to see you open these new "projects" for the first time. It will be so interesting to see how your creative mind puts these items together! I love the card and especially the colors. Oh, your English is perfect (and I love your accent!).
